Gift Brings Renowned Artist, Printmaking Project to Bowdoin

Bowdoin’s printmaking program is the recipient of a generous gift, launching an annual workshop that brings a renowned artist with an international perspective to the College to work with a local master printer and students to create a collaborative print.

This year, the Marvin Bileck Printmaking Project, made possible by support from the Marvin Bileck and Emily Nelligan Trust, brought artist Amze Emmons to campus, allowing him to work side by side with master printer David Wolfe and students from Assistant Professor of Art Carrie Scanga’s printmaking class to create a new edition of prints.
